You have to go back a lot of years to find a lever with the fit and finish of a Henry.
Don't get me wrong, I like all the levers, but Henry is Henry. It's in a class of it's own. I find it amazing all the wasted effort in trying to discredit it by comparing it to something different.
I don't expect a savage 110 to be a Remington 700 or a Winchester 70. You simply pick your preference and move on.
While all the arguments exist for the superiority of the savage 99, the Winchester, or the Marlin; the truth is, they don't exist any more. I plan to take advantage of the one American company that can make a quality lever rifle while I can, and not spend all my time trying to make them mimic a failed company.
